FWIW, payment is required to download the precomputed (and more imporant, supported-by-the-Ardour-team) binaries. Re: paypal, their site says, "You can pay with either a credit/debit card or a PayPal account (we use PayPal as our credit card processor, but you do not need an account with them)." This page explains why they use it: https://ardour.org/faq.html#paypal
You are free to download the source, either from the Ardour website, https://community.ardour.org/download?a ... ype=source,
or from Github, http://github.com/Ardour/ardour , and build it for yourself (see https://ardour.org/development.html).
Or you can get it from your distro's repositories, but it will almost certainly trail one or more versions behind the binaries the Ardour team ships. Neither the self-built nor the distro-built versions get explicit support: if you can't reproduce an issue with at least the demo version from ardour.org, it won't get much traction.
I have had a lot of issues, with LMMS from the official openSUSE repositories. Then main issue I noticed is that people don't tell the package builder stuff is not working. The package builder him self hardly knows how to even use LMMS. He did try to help me, but could not get Carla 100% working.
Because I talked to him, LMMS from openSUSE has now two versions. One with wine support one without.
The LMMS issue is solved though by installing Geekosdaw.
Back to Ardour, I am gonna read those pages again, and see if I can find a way to send money to a paypall account.
A quick search brought me to this:
N26 Mastercard, the site claims there are no yearly fees. If this is true, I might have found a solution.
But for now I am very skeptical, about a free credit card existing.
There is not much I miss in LMMS, but groove quantitation is one of them. (and LV2 support)
Cubase and Albeton though, don't have a Linux version and I don't wanna boot windows 10 for music production.
Even though I could, my pc is dualboot, with a 100% legal windows 10 version.
A bit off topic, ones saw a demonstration, an Atari ST with Cubase, a Yamaha Dx7 and a drum computer.
The person made a drumloop, and we said it sounded very mechanical.
He then right clicked something in Cubase and suddenly it sounded like a life drummer.
I want that on Linux
How hard can it be if it already existed on an Atari ST?
